7:01 PM
@InfiniteRecursion ok let's say, or maybe because your the only paid employee here you rejected it, .... kidding, just wanted to say it has no contradiction with the assumption
 
@Ahmad I'm the paid employee here. And even I wasn't getting paid when I wrote that answer.
 
I am the free loser who contributes here :)
 
@InfiniteRecursion lol, yes! don't worry we can't help it much, I am another one
@Shog9 You wasn't paid for that answer and you did it, I applaud that devotion ;)
 
@Ahmad Which should tell you something, really. The answers I wrote when I wasn't getting paid were waaay better than the ones I write now. For starters, they were shorter. More money doesn't mean more quality.
Now that I'm lighting my yachts with $100 bathtubs filled with caviar, I've no time for quality.
 
@Shog9 but you feel less being looser!
@Shog9 those time you was young and crazy! now that you are an old man, know what is the point
 
7:06 PM
the satisfaction and pride of telling all them young'uns to get off my lawn
 
@InfiniteRecursion certainly if I had a good paid job, could have more fun here :)!
@InfiniteRecursion You soon deleted your post, being afraid other know that you are not a devotee in real?
 
I am going to bookmark your and Shog's conversation...so I deleted it. Finally Ahmad meets Shog!
 
@InfiniteRecursion yeah he cares more to money these days, no time for chat! but I pushed him out of his ...
 
... rocking chair
 
Please, let's spend as much time as possible trying to convince some random dude of something on the internet.

7:11 PM
Just realized I've left this open for several hours... and it's still amusing.
 
@Shog9 Could I work for your company? you haven't yet realized my talent
 
@Mooseman do you know the backstory there?
 
@Shog9 Nope! :D
 
@Shog9 Are you going to sit in a rocking chair and tell us a story?
 
7:13 PM
@JasonC He was going to say his true life story before you came, now he changed his mind
 
@Shog9 Wait... so it's not a laughable failure? Cool.
 
@JasonC from the time he was a poor boy in Londons street
 
@Shog9 Nice cover-up story, fail fox.
 
@Mooseman well, he doesn't always get the mouse. But diving head-first into the snow is definitely intentional. Watch the full video if you get a chance.
 
@Shog9 Requires flash player :/
 
7:15 PM
My dogs run into screen doors a lot.
 
Keeping in mind, this is is the same channel that brought us "Amish Mafia"
 
Er, I mean, my dogs use the invisible magnetic field of the planet to triangulate and home in on their prey.
 
my dogs use the invisible magnetic field of the planet to triangulate and home in on my breakfast
 
Heh
 
@InfiniteRecursion What I say are sometimes kidding, Oh I remember once you said you get confused right?
 
7:18 PM
@Shog9 That's 100% real. Unscripted. Because they said so.
 
@InfiniteRecursion Right, it was our first chat! you brought me to this secret place first.
@InfiniteRecursion But it was good, now I know what happens behind the curtain.
 
Secret place? Yes, you said the SE police caught you facepalm
 
@InfiniteRecursion As the saner person in the conversation, stop engaging.
 
@JasonC Why you are jealous?
@InfiniteRecursion she knows me better than you all!
 
FACEDESK
 
7:23 PM
@InfiniteRecursion You were sometimes bad with me, but I understand you!
 
TABLENOSE
 
nosetable*
 
my wife came in....hush
 
After hitting my face on the desk, I was disoriented @JasonC!!
 
@InfiniteRecursion Hey don't hurm yourslef, no need really
@InfiniteRecursion don't let them to make you distrust to me
@InfiniteRecursion Excuse me if I sometimes didn't understand you! you are just a bit sensitive
@InfiniteRecursion :(, Hello?
 
7:29 PM
No problem, am hurt after hitting my beak on the table....cya
 
Heh, this is kinda funny: zachholman.com/posts/abusing-emoji
 
@InfiniteRecursion Just memories were going to alive! bad lucky I am
@InfiniteRecursion And I asked you about how you get your reputation? you remember?
@InfiniteRecursion never think I am kidding, unless myself say it ;), it seems you are not here and I am talking with wall, CYA
@JasonC Are you satisfied now? You made her to leave
@Bart Hey Swedish man! Hows going?
@Bart Sorry, It was swiss maybe
CYA
 
@Ahmad makes the first-ever self-contained train

@Mooseman Nice to meet you!
You are bad with me, you know I am not native!
 
@Ahmad I'm going to ask you to cool your jets on pinging people. It is spam.
 
7:40 PM
welcome back SE devs!
 
If you keep doing it I'll need to take action
Please chill out on the pinging and instead have conversations with those that respond to you. If they don't, stop.
 
@Haney Wow you really scared me!
 
yes when they are around then it doesn't make any sense to ping people again again
@AnnaLear ah yes errr...
 
I'm not trying to scare you. I want you to participate in conversations instead of one way pings.
 
7:41 PM
...is this the SE team meeting or something?
 
@Haney let I check the meaning of ping in dictionary
 
There are no scare tactics. It's really simple: please stop pinging, or we'll have to take some kind of action.
That includes pinging me right now. I am in the room with you talking.
 
^
 
Its not my fault that you are odd!
 
1 min ago, by TGMCians
yes when they are around then it doesn't make any sense to ping people again again
 
7:42 PM
@Haney listen to me, Its not really fun to me to be here
 
OK, I can help you with that
 
sigh of relief
 
you're no longer here. Magic.
he can return in 1 min. It's a sliding thing. I'll hang out to see what he does
 
That's the make someone disappear trick. Classic! Where are the smoke and mirrors?
 
If I told you it would ruin the trick!
 
7:43 PM
If you're going to hang out, best get some popcorn.
 
I have nacho chips?
 
Acceptable.
 
I have turnips.
 
I have a keyboard's worth of plastic keys...
 
Also everyone remember (though it isn't the "right answer") you can ignore him by clicking on his name
 
7:45 PM
Not replies.
 
Ignoring people means potentially breaking Shadow's word association game, which is completely unacceptable.
 
@Haney The animation is spiffy!
 
Valid point.
 
I'm going to build a botnet to launch spam at drupal.se when I say so, just so I can get SmokeDetector to interrupt awkward moments in the tavern.
I mean, I have a friend who is going to do that.
 
@Haney First Time I was here, you said this chat has no owner, and I really don't want to disturb you
 
7:49 PM
BTW, if shog is still here, would you like to weigh in on meta.stackexchange.com/q/243411/202832
 
@JasonC I don't know this guy @Haney who defend in behalf of you, its really bad, you yourself could say something
@JasonC Could you please introduce him
 
I'm not defending anybody. I'm enforcing the rules of Stack Exchange which include no harassment.
 
@Ahmad Please don't ping users from unrelated rooms to get around a kick, either.

@JasonC Ok then yourself tell me, At least I know you, when I said something to anyone here?
 
I'd kick Jason C for multiple pings too. I'm an equal opportunity employee.
 
7:51 PM
@nicael Thanks for the bounty! likes lips at sight of 500 MsE rep
 
Not a joke, Mooseman.
 
^^^ I think that's my first bounty.
 
Wow, I came to shout due to being overpinged...but now notice that I missed an important event !
 
Fair enough, Haney
 
suspension increased by 1 day; new suspension lasts for 3 days until Nov 14 '14 at 19:50
call us if the fun continues on Friday
 
7:52 PM
Congrats bjb, first bounty is a happy moment
 
> This user has been temporarily suspended by a moderator and cannot chat for 2 days.
 
:D
 
it's actually 3 days
but nonetheless
 
zeh caching
 
Thanks.
 
thanks for reporting it, CARRY ON NETIZENS. STACK CREW, AWAAAAYYYYY!

Thanks Haney
 
Thanks Haney!
 
Word. Later all
I have works to be doin'
or at least pretend like I'm doin'
 
:D
 
7:54 PM
I'm back
 
wb Jan
 
^The day when Ahmad met Shog and the paid employees
Jan, you missed history!
 
I must admit I didn't exactly expect he would get himself kicked
 
I came to shout for being overpinged, and then he was banned for 3 days
 
It would be noble of us to not revel in it, though.

7:55 PM
I was one of the first flaggers.
 
I have read back to the point of him provoking Haney, but where did the drama start?
 
It started with poking Shog
 
Oh. That must've hurt.
 
Something bad happened! Usually there are 15-20 bountied questions there, but now only 2 :(
 
@nicael I have an answer on one of them, but I think both bounties will go to SE dev team folks upon their responses.

8:41 PM
I answered a question that has a bounty offered on it, then realized that the user asked a very similiar question 2 days later. I think it's cv-dup, but I'd like other opinions.
This is the question with the bounty: stackoverflow.com/q/26710811/656243
This is the "new" question: stackoverflow.com/q/26840560/656243
 
@LynnCrumbling I wouldn't consider them quite duplicate.
 
@Mooseman It's interesting - if you look at the second question, he clearly made headway (if you read my answer, he's gone down the same road I had to), but still hasn't formed an idea of how to do it.
@Mooseman One question is "gimme a command line tool", the other is "gimme some code"
@Mooseman In the end, both questions want to modify the IIS6 metabase to add a denied IP.
 
@LynnCrumbling Right -- so it's not quite a duplicate, even though it relates to the same issue. However, the "gimme some code" q should be closed.
 
@Mooseman I agree, and apparently it's already garnered a dv and a cv.
@Mooseman Hah; George Stocker just threw in a mod cv
 
Can someone flag a question for me?
 
8:51 PM
Whats happened with Bolt Clock??? Last seen sep 28...
 
This needs revision 3 scrubbed: stackoverflow.com/questions/26857892/…
I flagged it but said rev 1 needed to be scrubbed....
 
@rene What's wrong with rev 3?
 
@Mooseman auth info. lots of it.
 
that ^^^^
 
The OP pasted all of the relevant code, including their client secret.
 
8:54 PM
@LynnCrumbling I overlooked the top of the first code block. I see it now...
@rene Flagged
 
@Mooseman sigh "Here!! Have my credentials!!!"
 
Tnx
 
@LynnCrumbling Then again, they're apparently returning a 401...
 
@Mooseman Good point... it's a trap!
 
Any thoughts on this (including the link I provided in the comment) meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/276629/…
 
9:09 PM
@rene Looking at the question, I think it was closed for the right reason; said user shouldn't have answered it at all though. In regards to the question you linked to, I think they all belong on server fault.
 
Hmmm

@LynnCrumbling yep, voted
 
@rene ok - thanks!
 
@Servy Let's agree to disagree. Now I want some ice cream. — rene 15 secs ago
@Mooseman did your flag got accepted? George Stocker deleted the question...
 
9:47 PM
@rene Get your ice cream? Just read through that whole question + answer + comments. I REALLY don't think that guy was trying to be rude.
 
I agree with that....
 
@rene In fact, it feels like a tempest in a teapot.
 
It was more about the whole point of the question wrongly being closed
I simply don't agree with Servy
@LynnCrumbling Yeah, sensitive OP...
 
@rene where's the page/docs on docker?
 
9:51 PM
@rene that has another cv-network/server already
 
I saw that

Afternoon, folks!

@rene docker feels like an emulator. I guess there's an API component to it?
 
What is the rep limit for adding images in posts instead of links
 
@LynnCrumbling Could be, I'm not into that stuff that much. It read like it is a configure once run anywhere kind of thingy

abby hairboatWe examined this issue and decided that on most sites, the restriction is doing more harm than good. The restriction has therefore simply been removed on all sites except Stack Overflow, Server Fault, Ask Ubuntu and Super User. We may revisit this list if we notice, or the moderators inform us of...

@Frank SO is excluded
 
@rene I saw that just now.
 
@Frank it s lifted at 10 rep on SO...
 
@rene Ok, that's not bad.
 
Yeah, I assumed it was higher....
 
@Frank I already CV'd that first one earlier today; now I'm getting irritated that I can't remember what originally drew my attention to it.
 
@JasonC I did.
 
Oh
Hey does anybody have the link to SmokeDetector's source handy?
 
^^ that.
 
10:46 PM
@AnnaLear Thanks
 
She got there first. :)
 
And also word to the Farscape reference earlier, it definitely doesn't get enough love.
 
uh oh, chatexchange build needs a fix
 
Does anybody know of a Java API for interfacing with chat? If not I want to put together a Java version of ChatExchange, maybe next week, and a Qt-based one as well (unless there's a C++ API somewhere already).
 
It's WIP though. It's on a GPL v2.
 
10:54 PM
@Unihedron Suh-weeeet
 
By work in progress I mean it's practically only there for three days.
 
@Unihedron It's... okay.
 
When I get back from my next job I'll see if I can contribute.
 
@hichris123 Hmm, ok.
 
@Unihedron Hold on, I'll fix.

> This question appears to be off-topic because of the meta effect.
^ evid. close misuse..
 
11:14 PM
@Unihedron How?
It's off topic because it's not about programming.
 
@JasonC The fact that the meta effect exists doesn't automatically make questions off-topic.
 
@Unihedron The fact that the meta effect exists doesn't automatically make off-topic questions on-topic.
Who cares about the meta stuff; it's a server administration question. I'd CV it meta or not.
 
@JasonC Yes, but it's still a misuse of the close reason. They should use the appropriate off-topic reasons where necessary. See this:

Q: Misuse of "off topic" closure reason

DuncanI feel there has been a recent rise in people closing questions they don't like using the "off topic" closure reason. I saw an example today where the closure reason was: This question appears to be off-topic because this isn't a code-writing service (emphasis mine) It received four other...

 
@Unihedron How do you feel that "Questions on professional server- or networking-related infrastructure administration are off-topic for Stack Overflow unless they directly involve programming or programming tools" is not the appropriate close reason? o.O
 
@JasonC No, someone used a custom close vote reason with "This question appears to be off-topic because of the meta effect.".
 
11:18 PM
@Unihedron I didn't even see that; I agree that's lame.
 
I implied that they should use the correct (professional server infrastructure) reason instead.
 
Sorry I misunderstood.
 
Well, it's ok.
 
Looks like it must have been Martin James.
 
Ughughugh. 18:30 here. Going to bed at 23:30. Need to read chapters 40-52 of Great Expectations, annotate 1 thing per page from like chapter 17, and do a worksheet. Also Spanish homework.

Lol I guess it doesn't matter but I figured out what happened
 
I'm confused.

A: How about forcing answers when there is rapid down-voting without any answers?

Jason CI disagree with this proposal. I have nothing constructive to add, but I am just posting an answer because I am required to in order to down-vote, since there are already too many down-votes on the proposal. The above is essentially the type of answer that this proposal would attract to questi...

The OP definitely did not like my answer. I thought it was accurate.
 
@JasonC He liked mine...
I can't upvote your answer for another 17 mins.
Nor can I downvote the q.
 
@Frank Yours is very good.
I just didn't want to touch on his specific example question, or a general discussion on what down-votes on meta mean.
